Thai Inspired Destination Weddings

Jun 01, 2020

In time to come, when the situation permits, Thailand will once again be a popular destination for weddings, particularly the southern islands of Samui and Phuket, as well as Krabi and Hua Hin. With direct flights from Malaysia, these destinations are relatively easy to get to, with affordable air tickets if one plans ahead and books early. Indeed, the amiable nature of the Thais and the hospitality that they are known for are added incentives to plan for a destination wedding there.

Some tips to take note of  :

  • These destinations offer a variety of resorts, many with beachfronts, catering to various budgets and capacities. So be sure to look into the details when contemplating the resorts that may have caught your eye.
  • If a certain level of privacy is a preference of yours, check to see if the resort offers a location that is more private in nature for your celebrations, away from the prying eyes of other guests.
  • Consider if you would be collaborating with wedding vendors in your home city or if you will be hiring vendors at the destination.
